Patrick Wilson is no stranger to the DC Universe on the big screen, having played Nite Owl in Watchmen and the voice of the President of the US in Batman V Superman – both directed by Zack Snyder.
And now he’s set for what’s seemingly a major role in the upcoming Aquaman movie directed by James Wan – that of Orm, half brother of Aquaman and the villainous Ocean Master.
Orm in the comics is a powerful character who wants the throne of Atlantis, owned by Arthur, his half brother.
His character could conceivably become a Loki-type in the DC Cinematic Universe but it’s all still up in the air, but we’re excited to see what Wan and co make of the character.
The villain was rumoured to be Black Manta but it looks like it’s not the case now, however we wouldn’t rule out more than one bad guy in the movie.
